Hey there, polar bear, it's quite a mess we've found Life is one heavy trip, our paws are sinking in the ground I see you out lumbering at the break of dawn How can we survive and save the day before the day is gone? Well I know I'm gonna find a way I know I'm gonna light the way 'Cause if I'm ever gonna make it then I gotta say I can save the world today and every day
Young blood coming up and coming from behind You know you've go the force to change the world And it's your mind, your big plans are shining like the bright waves Of the sun, we can't be done when all I see is that you've just begun, well I know you're gonna find a way I know you're gonna light the way So if we're ever gonna make it, then you gotta say I can save the world today and every day
Some say the smallest things don't count Then say the big things don't amount To any answers either Man there is no break or breather There's no time for this smart frustration I say everyone, everyone's a power station I will light the way But we gotta say We can save the world a little every day
Hey there, polar bear, I know this much is true There are so many, many things that we can do If you don't go and make it down the line What will we tell tomorrow when tomorrow says we have this time? Well, I know we're gonna find a way I know we're gonna light the way And I know we're gonna make it, but we gotta say We can save the world today and every day Today and every day and every day
Spreading the Word From the Dar Williams Website
For every piece of bad news we hear about how we’re “consuming Earth’s life-support systems”, as acclaimed scientist John Liu puts it, there is an amazing array of solutions, from ancient farming wisdom to modern smart grid technology that are emerging every day. And it’s not just theoretical. People everywhere are going hands-on with their contributions to conservation, efficiency, and renewable energies. They do it with enthusiasm, and they do it every day.
The new music video by songwriter / environmental activist, Dar Williams, Today and Every Day, brings hope back with a playful focus on the power of the things all of us do to breathe life back into our planet.

Hope is a positive and potent spiritual practice with the power to pull us through difficult times. It is usually described with light metaphors — a ray, a beam, a glimmer of hope; the break in the clouds; the light at the end of the dark tunnel. It is often discovered in unexpected places. Hope can be learned with practice. Certain attitudes support it. One is patience, an ability to tolerate delays, a willingness to let events unfold in their own time. The other is courage, an attitude of confidence even when facing the unknown. A third is persistence, the determination to keep going no matter what happens. We have hope when we can say, all will be well, and we mean it.
